The lower face and neck are the most noticeable areas of change as we start to age and gain weight. Fat storage accumulates here, skin yields to gravity and starts to sag, losing its elasticity and firmness all trailed by uneven, textured skin. The PrecisionTx® by Cynosure is now available at Advanced Varicose Vein Treatments of Manhattan to get rid of sagging and loose skin around the neck and chin.
PrecisionTx® Laser Treatment
With the PrecisionTx® laser treatment, there’s no need to automatically turn to surgery. This procedure is geared toward lower face and neck contouring, reduction of double chin and turkey neck symptoms. No longer are face and neck lift the only options to help reduce these advanced signs of aging.
PrecisionTx® can also take care of a condition in the underarm area known as hyperhidrosis, to tame excessive sweating by using heat energy on the overactive sweat glands and hair follicles. This is a delicate issue that affects only about three percent of the total population but can be extremely sensitive for those afflicted. If you’re interested in this treatment for hyperhidrosis, contact Dr. Lev at Advanced Varicose Vein Treatments of Manhattan to find out more.
How does PrecisionTx® work?
Now that you know you have the option to avoid major facial surgery, it’s time that we explain how PrecisionTx® lifts and tightens the lower face and neck areas. PrecisionTx® delivers a 1440nm wavelength of laser energy that is applied to deeper layers of adipose fat tissue and the dermis. Prior to beginning the procedure, a local anesthetic is used to numb the area to ensure optimal patient comfort.
Dr. Lev at Advanced Varicose Vein Treatments of Manhattan will make a small incision into the skin in the area where the chin and neck meet. Depending on your specific needs during laser treatment with PrecisionTx®, Dr. Lev may hide the incision in the fold just behind or beneath the ear. With Dr. Lev, all patients are treated in under one hour!
SideLaze 800 and ThermaGuide™
The laser is delivered through the PrecisionTx’s ThermaGuide™ cannula and SideLaze 800 handheld tool as the physician uses a gentle down-stroking motion throughout the layers underneath the skin and within the fatty adipose tissue. The fat cells in this area are expertly penetrated and melt as the heat energy is delivered through the SideLaze 800 tool.
SideLaze 800 is effective during this procedure because the laser isn’t simply delivered in a forward motion on the tip of the tool, but rather is adjustable to switch side application; the physician will rotate the SideLaze 800 to face the lower fatty tissue layers first. As fatty tissue is melted and the deep layers are tightened beneath them with laser energy, a forward-facing laser focuses on the fat cells in between.
Once the fatty tissue is treated in a stroking motion, the physician will flip the tool and apply the laser heat energy to the dermal layers to invigorate collagen production. This procedure tightens lax skin that comes from cell breakdown as we age and the exposure to UVA and UVB rays. Treating fatty tissue beneath the dermal layer allows the physician to set the foundation for neck contouring.
This ThermaGuide™ cannula helps the physician control heat application by quantifying the temperature of the tissues as the treatment progresses. It’s important that the physician delivers the right amount of heat to the layers of the dermis to break down damaged collagen fibers and skin cells, as well as maintain the right temperature to damage fat cells.

What can I expect from results?
It is estimated that there is a 29% increase in the thickness of the skin, roughly three months after treatment with PrecisionTx®. After just one treatment three to six months following the procedure, you will notice a dramatic change in your skin in the lower face and neck area. The skin will become thicker, tighter and fuller to give you a more youthful appearance overall.
How you feel can be dramatically influenced by the way you look, and a sad-looking face that is drooping can make you look much older than you are. Sagging skin in the neck and jowls that form as a result of lost skin volume can make your frown permanent. This Precision Tx® treatment will change your life with quick results. The best part is, you can do it during your lunch break!
